DFPS has rolled out financial support to foster youth and young adults during the COVD-19 pandemic.

Support is available for youth and young adults in the following areas:

  • Funds for youth and young adults age 14-21 currently in foster care or in extended foster care. These funds can  meet pandemic-related needs, but also educational, vocational, and a variety of auxiliary personal and transitional needs for youth and young adults.
  • Funds for young adults age 18-21 who have aged out and left foster care. These funds are able to meet not only pandemic related needs, but also educational, vocational, and a variety of auxiliary personal and transitional needs for youth and young adults.
  • Emergency funding for young adults age 21-27 who have aged out and left foster care.
